Medal Standard – a company with a difference

Once James has finished competing in athletics, he has a dream of setting up a company to help others stride towards their dreams of competing.

He said: “I’m putting things in place for a company which I want to set up when I finish competing, which is called Medal Standard.

“I’ve seen a lot of people running companies and ‘sports for all’ schemes and paying people to go into schools and places like that, but a lot of them haven’t been top level athletes.

British 200m champion James Ellington won his heat on his first outing in Moscow's 2013 World Athletics Championships, running a time of 20.55 and beating four-time world medalist Wallace Spearmon of the USA in the process. Ellington was relieved to progress untroubled and lay the ghost of London 2012 to rest.

James said on his qualification to the World Championship Semi Final: “I think today was just about getting rid of the cobwebs and making sure I didn't run a silly race and get knocked out in the heats like I had before.”
